COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — An Irving Park man was shot dead Monday night during an argument about headphones, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Larry Russell, 30, of the 7700 block of South Jeffery Boulevard, is charged with first-degree murder. He was ordered held without bail Wednesday.

According to prosecutors, Russell got into an argument with a 28-year-old man — who has not yet been identified by authorities — over a pair of headphones in the 4300 block of North Elston Avenue about 10:55 p.m. Monday.

Russell "became angry," pulled out a .25 caliber handgun and fired it four times toward the victim, Assistant State's Attorney April Gonzales said during a bond hearing Wednesday.

The 28-year-old man, who was struck in his left abdomen and upper back, was able to run across Elston before collapsing on the ground, prosecutors said. He was later pronounced dead at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

A witness who heard gunfire spotted Russell fleeing the scene wearing a distinctive red hoodie with black designs, prosecutors said. Video surveillance shows someone in the same hoodie on Elston shortly after the attack.

Police, who'd been given a description of the hoodie, found Russell less than a mile away around 11 p.m., court records show. He was carrying a .25 caliber gun and two small baggies of marijuana, according to police.

Officers found four shell casings on the scene that appear to be a match to Russell's gun based on a preliminary investigation, prosecutors said.

In a videotaped statement, Russell confessed to police that he shot the victim "because he was angry," Gonzales said.
